Rappahannock United Way thanking donors in these COVID times

From Rappahannock United Way:

Rappahannock United Way (RUW) is thanking donors from corporate campaign companies and local government campaigns with a unique display outside of its building on  Shannon Park Drive.

The 2020 RUW workplace campaigns took place during one of the most historically difficult times in our workforce, yet employees continued to give and employers continued to support.  “The continued generosity from our annual partners and donors really shows our community’s  commitment to unite in the wake of an unprecedented year,” remarks Ann Jones, Director of Resource  Development at Rappahannock United Way.

RUW is transforming their LOVEworks sign, installed in February 2020, to recognize its top campaign companies, annual corporate sponsors, Tocqueville donors and leadership giving circle donors. The wrap  that will be used has been donated in-kind by Illusions Wraps and Metro Nova Creative.
In addition, RUW will be delivering awards by hand to each of its top campaign companies and campaign  volunteers in lieu of its annual awards luncheon. “We missed seeing our donors and volunteers in person this year,” says Grace Draper, Corporate  Relationship Manager at Rappahannock United Way. “Delivering our awards by hand still gives us the  opportunity to connect and thank those who are making a difference in our community, especially for  local ALICE® households.”

Due in part to the generosity of local corporations and employee donors, Rappahannock United Way was able to respond immediately when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March, 2020. RUW continues to  maintain their heightened response level – helping those in the ALICE community begin to recover
financially through direct services and The ALICE Assistance Fund. RUW programs include Financial  Coaching, Free Tax Preparation, Mission: Independence and more. The ALICE Assistance Fund provides financial assistance for working or newly jobless households, by providing one-time housing and  transportation assistance to eligible applicants.
